The Karlstad is the top level bike in the Simmonsohn Adventure Series.
Running on slightly larger 700c wheels, the Karlstad can cover more miles than the Mountain Series, but can still handle some extra weight and some light rough.
Its perfect for the couple who want to explore tandem paths, tracks, roads and lanes. The new frame design results in a low step over height for the stoker position.
